SAN RAMON, Calif. - The ClimateTalk™ Alliance recently announced its newest members at a two-day membership meeting: A.O. Smith and Nordyne. ClimateTalk is an open standards communication framework that enables simple connectivity among diverse HVAC and smart energy devices.

“The ClimateTalk communication standard is beneficial because it allows for the development of interoperable equipment and takes it one step further; by providing opportunities for customization and differentiation among various applications,” said Andy Philips, manager of platform electronics for A.O. Smith and ClimateTalk Alliance board member.

“We are very excited to be a part of this organization and look forward to being involved in helping to shape the future of ClimateTalk.”

Craig Johnson, chairman of ClimateTalk Alliance, said, “At our recent member meeting, the ClimateTalk Alliance gained two significant members and picked up momentum with the formation of four additional working groups. It is exciting to see the alliance working as a whole towards our goal of leveraging existing industry standards to achieve seamless information integration. We continue to see increasing support and consistent growth throughout the industry.”

The four new working groups were formed with focuses on CT-485, wireless, common Information model, and smart energy. Members present at the meeting, which included 36 representatives from 16 of 22 member companies, also attended a smart energy strategy session, lead by Anto Budiardjo, president and CEO of Clasma Events.
